SAN FRANCISCO – iBeat has launched a heart-monitoring smartwatch, the iBeat Life Monitor, which continuously monitors heart function and can detect warning signs for cardiac arrest. “This device is not only a technological breakthrough, it fits into a person’s wardrobe with style and ease, making it simple to integrate its lifesaving properties into one’s everyday routine,” said Dr. Mehmet Oz, host of the nationally syndicated “The Dr. Oz Show,” and who has invested in and will serve as a special advisor to the company. In the case of abnormality, the watch asks the wearer to indicate whether he or she is OK. If there is no response, or if the answer is “no”, the watch can call for an ambulance or notify family members over a built-in cellular connection. “Continual monitoring and quick intervention can mean the difference between life and death in emergency situations,” said iBeat founder and CEO Ryan Howard.
